Son of a gun! I've owned this unit since May, I guess, and I never opened the box it came in. It was just sitting in the bed of a truck I had in the garage. I finally pulled the truck out and I'm trying to sort through all the crap that was on it, in it, under it, just everywhere. So I finally open the box the IH came in and pull it out. It was packed with those peanuts, which got everywhere. After that mess was cleaned up, I opened the gas cap. It smelled horrible. The ad said it didn't run and that it had been sitting somewhwere for years, if I recall. Anyway, the gas tank was empty, and smelled badly of stale gas. I pulled the starter cord, and was happy to find it would turn over. I looked at the spark plug. It was the rustiest example of CJ14 I think I have ever seen. So I yanked it out and gave it a new one. I checked for spark before I put the new plug in, and it did have spark. So I said ah, what the heck, give it some gas. I poured a few sips of fresh gas in the tank. I primed the carb a few times, gave it a little snort of ether, and gave it a few pulls. It fired up on like the third pull. It won't stay running unless I prime it to keep it going. But still, what a surprise! And the wheels are not wobbly, the shroud is not cracked, the deck is in really good shape... Cosmetically I almost don't want to mess with it. All I need for it is a yellow discharge plate, and I'm golden. The one on it right now is all busted up. Oh, and I guess a little carb work is in order. But I must say, I am pleasantly surprised with this one! I think I'll even take some pics.
